9780444633149: Topological Insulators, Volume 6 (Contemporary Concepts of Condensed Matter Science)

Topological Insulators, volume six in the Contemporary Concepts of Condensed Matter Series, describes the recent revolution in condensed matter physics that occurred in our understanding of crystalline solids. The book chronicles the work done worldwide that led to these discoveries and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the field.

Starting in 2004, theorists began to explore the effect of topology on the physics of band insulators, a field previously considered well understood. However, the inclusion of topology brings key new elements into this old field. Whereas it was thought that all band insulators are essentially equivalent, the new theory predicts two distinct classes of band insulators in two spatial dimensions and 16 classes in three dimensions. These "topological" insulators exhibit a host of unusual physical properties, including topologically protected gapless surface states and exotic electromagnetic response, previously thought impossible in such systems.

Within a short time, this new state of quantum matter, topological insulators, has been discovered experimentally both in 2D thin film structures and in 3D crystals and alloys. It appears that topological insulators are quite common in nature, and there are dozens of confirmed substances that exhibit this behavior. Theoretical and experimental studies of these materials are ongoing with the goal of attaining the fundamental understanding and exploiting them in future practical applications.

  • Usable as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference resource for professionals
  • Includes the most recent discoveries and visions for future technological applications
  • All authors are prominent in the field

Book Description Oxford Elsevier LTD Nov 2013, 2013. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - In Influencing Enterprise Risk Mitigation, author Francis J. D'Addario draws on his many years of impressive security experience to describe business risk prevention and mitigation strategies. D'Addario, former security manager at Starbucks, Hardee's, and Jerrico, shares stories of risk mitigation successes and failures--including natural disasters, a triple murder, and multimillion dollar fraud schemes--to help explain the need for an all-hazard risk mitigation approach. In this book, the author discusses the psychology of security, the geography of risk, and baseline identity authentication and access control measures. He also talks through the steps for making security a priority for the business, estimating return on investment for security services, and leveraging data to learn from the mistakes and successes of those who came before us. The ability to quantify the benefits of risk mitigation will influence business investment in prevention and response preparedness.Influencing Enterprise Risk Mitigation teaches us that both hazards and mitigation opportunities in the enterprise start at the individual and community level, and that recovery from a catastrophe hinges on individual and community resiliency. Influencing Enterprise Risk Mitigation is a part of Elsevier's Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, a collection of real world solutions and 'how-to' guidelines that equip executives, practitioners, and educators with proven information for successful security and risk management programs. 331 pp. Englisch.
